(EDIT: Previously titled Dragons In Shining Armor)
Pursuant to a discussion in TRS -
Dragons that wear armor. This might seem a bit redundant, considering that dragons are already scaled and at the very least Made of Iron
because of it. However, it looks really cool
Beyond that, it may serve a practical benefit. Perhaps the dragon has a weak spot in their scales that they'd want to cover
. Perhaps the scales aren't as tough as they look. Maybe it's just a variant of heraldry for them.
More common if a Dragon Rider
is involved, as the dragon is treated as a fantastic version of a cavalry animal.

- Some of the rule books for Dungeons & Dragons allow for armor constructed for dragons.
- Armed Dragon cards in the YuGiOh Card Game, which go through Evolutionary Levels. Armed Dragon LV 3 upgrades to LV 5, to LV 7 (and that can be replaced with LV 10, optionally). They're an increasingly-humanoid series of red dragons wearing dark, shiny metal armor.
